Default Eibach Spring swap

Ive got aIebach springs in my 88 gt which was totalled and I want to swap them into my new 95 gt. First, will they fit alright? I figured they will... secondly how hard of a job is it? I wasn't the one to put them in the 88 so I don't have a clue.

I dont know much about cars, but I put the Eibach pro kit and kybs in my 90 stang. you can rent a spring loader at most auto places. just call around. or check out a rental place.

you have to compact the spring to put it in. or take it out for that matter. if they are lowering springs you will need caster/camber plates. I found that out the hard way.

for the most part. The plate is a must. Basicly it adjusts how your tires meet the pavement. also bring your car in for an alignment when you are done.
